In iho April number 1850 we have
shown that food has a great influence upon
man's temperament and charactor. The
history of the German nation furnishes a
proof of the truth of this assertion. Tho
character of that people in the days of Ar-
miuius seems to have been very different
from that of to day. The cause may be
easily accounted for when their food is con
sidered ; and it becomes still more evident
when wc contemplate the efll-ct of ihe ha
bitual use of liquors so highly impregnated
with the narcotic hop. The lethargic and
torpid stale which characterizes the old
Bavarians, may be directly traced lo their
beer. That il is not the effect of the alco-
hoi it contains, is proved by the vivacity
and activity of the wine-drinking Rhine
lander end Frenchman. Chemistry has
long since exploded the ideas wilh which
the victims of this mania have flattered
and consoled themselves concerning its
strengthening effects, and, allowing its
stomachic and tonio properties, we have
yet to discover the philosophy which advo.
